About This Game

Railgunners is a shooter, built to highly customizable difficulty levels.

Fight your way through hundreds of enemy ships, and help humanity fight back against the alien invasion!

There are 3 playable characters to choose from, each one with a unique experimental ship,
armed with powerful guns and special abilities!

Get to the Mothership and smash into the main reactor!
But it wont be an easy task, to reach there you will need to fight through multiple stages that will test your wits and reflexes!

The gameplay follows a simple but challenging cycle. At the start of each round your ship will be shot through a giant Railgun, and you will have a go against the enemy forces, the thing is, the technology necessary to use the ships consumes way too much energy, and it will be slowly depleted until you are either shot down, or your energy ends, that will mark the end of the round and you will be teleported back to the base. Keep agressive and chain enemy defeats to replenish your energy and get access to higher powers! Clear levels to gain special weapons and mods, making your ship stronger or altering the gameplay, so you can last longer until you reach your missions objective.
